The Cambridge Digital Library has announced plans to make all of Newton's papers available on-line, on this link (http://cudl.lib.cam.ac.uk/collections/newton). At present, there seems to be a lot of mysterious images which say "This page is left unintentionally blank", but I think the project will take some time to complete.

Thanks for providing the link---I seem to have forgotten that Latin was the norm for the educated of that time period---The last time I remember reading Latin was as a Sophomore in HS.

Thanks, Perikles!
